Back in 1915 when Anchorage was a big tent city, butcher Oscar Anderson decided to build his family a real wood-frame house. Today the small house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. House tours—which last about 45 minutes—give a glimpse into what Anchorage life was like in the early 20th century, with period furnishings, historic photos, and a chance to hear a tune on Oscar's player piano.
